The role of technology is now integral to construction management. This area will be among the first in the world to include virtual reality and building information modelling into construction education and research providing us with many opportunities. The school provides leading-edge, innovative and applicable research solutions and consulting services to the Construction, Property and other related industries.

What makes our school a stand out is our industry-focused approach to education and research. People and companies from across industry become active supporters, advisors and participants in the education process. We maintain extensive relationships with more than 300 industry connections through the Employer of Choice program, which provides structured employment experience in industry settings and preferential access to employers.
